It is not perfect, but things are going. Drawing and writing directly with pen and markers, no pencil sketch. Only some scribblings on a notebook. I am getting speed and having fun. In time, I hope to improve my drawing skills.
Things are moving. Drawing as if writing. No pencil sketch. Only dialogue and fast doodles on a notebook before drawing directly with pen and markers. It’s clumsy, expressive and intuitive. Hopefully, as the story develops, with moments of intellect. Sometimes I fear to be a fool or an idiot. It’s a consequence of being so focused on myself and my work. Perhaps being exposed on the Internet might give me some clues about the path I’m taking. Let’s wait for people’s reactions…
I am really enjoying getting back to black markers. It’s much more intuitive and spontaneous to me. Now I previously write the text of the page on a notebook inside empty panels, just to map things up in my mind and enable myself to draw directly, without pencil sketching. Finally I am getting fast enough to shorten the gap between thought and materialization in an effective matter. It only takes discipline to get the work done and tune up technique in the meantime.
Now I am trying to draw directly with pen and markers, with no pencil sketching. In my opinion, the result is more synthetic and much more expressive. Drawing becomes much closer to writing and vice-versa. The gap between thought and final work is getting shorter. Let’s see if this is the time I won’t get bored! I’ve decided not to think about color right now. It takes too much time. Perhaps later I’ll try drawing directly with ink and watercolors. Now it’s time for black and white.
Here is another Page 1. This time I draw directly with pen and paintbrush. No pencil needed. Than I scanned the drawings and paint them on the computer. The painting process still takes too much time. And it is not as fun as with watercolors. I’m considering living it all in black and white. Let’s see how it goes.
